Stem Cell Therapy Passed Steep and Deep Test: Aguille du Midi

The Aguille du Midi in Chamonix, France is the starting point for the longest lift-serviced ski and snowboarding run in the world: the 13-mile-long Vallée Blanche. It’s often called the greatest ski run on the planet.  The terrain is steep and dangerous with no exit other than helicopter.

CM is a 56 y/o patient who sustained a right knee meniscus tear while running to catch a plane.  The  knee pain was severe in nature, progressive in nature and  interrupted his sleep.  The pain made walking difficult and resulted in a significant limp. He declined athroscopic meniscectomy involving the surgical removal the damaged meniscus.  Surgical procedures have been demonstrated to accelerate osteoarthritis in the knee.

 CM underwent Regenexx C whereby autologous mesenchymal stem cells were injected into the damaged meniscus.  He has no down time and left the Centeno-Schultz Clinic with a knee brace which he wore for several weeks. 

16 months post stem cell injection CM reports no pain or limp.  He has returned to his active lifestyle and recently successfully finished the Aguille du Midi.

Bravo!
